Home improvements ‘should be carried out by qualified professionals’

There is little point in asking somebody to carry out home improvements on your abode unless they are a fully qualified professional, in the opinion of one industry expert.

Jason Orme, editor at Homebuilding & Renovating magazine, said there is “no safeguard” if people take no steps to validate the authenticity of the tradesman they invite into their homes. His words come at a time when many Britons may require home improvements, with the AA Home Emergency Response Service recently suggesting 39 per cent of all dwellings in the country are in a state of disrepair. “The benefit is in making sure that you find people who are approved or have high recommendations – otherwise you may as well do it yourself, quite frankly,” Mr Orme stated.

It is therefore always worth finding a professional through a reputable source – such as – to ensure the work carried out is of the highest quality.
